Here's another coin that arrived today. This coin doesn't disappoint--it looks nice, although capturing detail on a dark, glossy patina is a real challenge! It's hard to balance the reflections with details--I will need to find a new technique.



KINGDOM OF THRACE. Rhoemetalkes, 11 BC-12 AD. Æ20 Diademed head of king / Bare head of Augustus. RPC.1714. 4.8gr

The coin looks better than I thought from your first post with sellers pics.

Nice shooting to bring out the details.

I have trouble shooting(waxed)glossy coins too. It's really irritating.

Thanks! I'm glad I succeeded at bringing out details.
The real challenge is showing how the portraits pop from the fields.
That will be another photographic technique to master.
